WASHINGTON (AP) — Preliminary results of an exit poll conducted for The Associated Press show that the presidential election hinges once again on the economy.

Really? Not Big Bird? Not contraception?
Half of the country still blames George W. Bush for the economy.
After FOUR YEARS of complete failure from our President, he still gets a pass from half the country.
How do you overcome that? Not just tonight, but ever.
Still blaming Bush. Hysterical.
I’d almost like to see Obama get in, so he could totally trash the economy and watch them all try to still blame Bush for EIGHT years of disaster.
I often wonder how people kept voting for FDR for Twelve years when he was so obviously incompetent at creating jobs and bringing us out of the depression.
If that was the case, then with the exception of those on welfare and/or receiving food stamps (for whom the "economy" means nothing) then Romney should be ahead by 10 points.
All of you act as if there were any truth to these exit polls. The first reports are NEVER accurate and they are wrong more than they are right. President kerry... remember? Damn... Conservatives are supposed to be made of stouter stuff than this. We may lose but nothing concrete on the ground points to that... in fact... just the opposite.
I agree with you about the worthlessness of exit polls, but the fact that they are saying the economy is overwhelmingly the biggest concern is good for Romney.
Oh... a reminder... THESE POLLS ARE ONLY BEING TAKEN IN 19 STATES.
I don’t disagree with what you are saying.
Just expressing out my incredulity at the responses people are giving.
In the past few elections, the earliest exit polls were always the worst for our side. They continued to get better and better as the evening wore on.
I will say that we must get something similar this time if we want to win. Here’s hoping!
WOW... we are treated with just as many exit polls as we were national polls.

I just get tired of the left and their games and Lucy keeps lifting the football every time Charlie goes to kick it.
47% said Obama and 51% said Romney.
If there’s any shred of rationality left in the country...this is the only figure we need to know for how the results will turn out.
